Without intending to re-open the debate (this is Bill's list run
according to his preferences), and being particularly pedantic (I work
in IT; it's an occupational hazard or even disease), there are in fact
use cases for Unicode in English - the thorn (C>), the 'ae' and 'oe'
ligatures, 'unusual' punctuation (interrobang, the irony mark, etc.).

And yes there are places 'out there' where non-ASCII graphemes are used
for English.

Of course 'smart' quotes are the least sensible reason for switching
any list to UTF-8.

        traffic from your mail system to destinations of THEIR choice.
